Loved it for a few days, deadly accurate. Took it on one trip it shorted out, blinking on and off and it's unable to weigh anything because it blinks and off every second. Not the battery, a short somewhere, defective. When it worked it worked beautifully-it's going back.

A follow up to my review here-amazing company, the owner of EatSmart contacted me immediately after seeing this review saying "they would put a tested replacement in the mail Monday" for me. (It was a weekend to boot.) GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

As I said the product worked great but broke, it was just a bad unit, could happen with any purchase. What doesn't happen normally is for a company to reach out to a consumer and fix a problem. I am an EatSmart fan now-they stand behind their products and deliver great customer service -something that is increasingly absent in most of our lives. Buy this scale!

I picked this item up at the same time I was purchasing a Eat Smart bathroom scale. The following week one of my family members was traveling so I weighed the suit case on the Eat Smart bathroom scale it it said 49.0 lbs.

I then weighed the same suit case using the Eat Smart Precision Luggage Scale and it showed 49lbs also. When you are right below the 50lb threshold it is very important to have the weight correct.

When the same suit case was weighed a few hours later at the airport it weighed in at 49.1 lbs so this luggage scale was right on the money.

It is very easy to use and only takes a few seconds to register the item being weighed.

If you travel at all and want to avoid the over charges for bags in excess of 50 lbs this scale is a real money saver

I just purchased this scale and decided to test it for accuracy before using it for a trip. The objects weighed included a set of dumbbells, a gallon of water, a backpack and a packed suitcase. I weighed each dumbbell 3 times. The 5# dumbbell weighed in at 4.6, 5.2, and 5.4. The 10# dumbell weighed in at 10.6, 10.6, and 10.8. The 15# dumbbell weighed in at 15.4, 15.4, and 15.6 The gallon of water (minus the container) came in at 8.0 pounds. An empty 3-pound Rick Steves Convertible travel pack weighed in consistently at 2.5 pounds. Packed to 21.8 pounds according to the EatSmart scale, it weighed the same using my bath scale. Finally, I loaded up a 25" suitcase, and it weighed 41.6, 42.2, and 42.4 with the EatSmart scale, and 42.0 using the bath scale.

The bottom line is that the EatSmart Precision Voyager scale isn't what I'd call "precise", but close enough. Notice that the greater the weight of the object the more accurate it was. It's easier than using the bath scale, and its also portable. And based on other reviews that suggest airport scales are unpredictable, I'll give myself at least a 3-lb cushion for carry-on and a 5-lb cushion for checked baggage.

You won't know how smartly designed this product is until you've tried other brands. Firstly, my wife who is barely 5 feet tall and weighs 90 lbs, will require all her strength and therefore her two hands to lift up the bag. This product allows, and according to the description, is designed for two-handed grip. Secondly, it uses a strap and buckle (instead of hooks) to secure the scale to the bag. It is more stable and is less prone for your bag or scale from accidentally dropping. Finally, the screen/display, which is conveniently back lit, is placed on top of the handle. The screen is placed directly in your line of sight while you are lifting. Compare this if the screen/display is on the side, you have to either stretch your arms out away from your body, or ask another person to read the display for you.

I almost forgot. This scale is extremely accurate and precise. You can assume that the measured weight will only differ by 0.l kg from the actual (airport scale) weight. If you want to maximize your luggage capacity, but do not want to pay for excess weight, this product is for you.

Used this product recently (June 2011). Worked very well--within ounces of the airport scale in all cases. Likely saved me a $75 overweight baggage fee. Yea for that!!! Only complaint is that the battery drained very quickly. Barely made it through the return trip. Might want to carry a spare 2032 battery...

This is simply a crazy-good product that's easy to use, easy to pack and a total worry-saver!

As a frequent traveler, I've been stuck too many times wondering if my bags were under the weight restrictions and having to re-pack them at the counter when they weren't or suck it up and pay the extra fee. Precision Voyager Luggage Scale is now one of my favorite travel tools and a must-pack for every trip. Also saves me the hassle before I leave home, knowing I've packed right and helping me make a decision on whether to take an extra suitcase for souvenirs, etc.

It is a great scale but I gave it only 4 stars because it has only a push button switch that can be accidentally turned on when tightly packed into a luggage bag. It should have rather a sliding switch or both kinds - a push button switch and a sliding switch like in LS-110 scale sold by American Weigh.

Now that the airlines (US Domestic) charge $25 per bag plus overweight fees, travelling without a high quality and easy to use scale is well, kinda dumb.

The cost of an overweight be can be $25. That's right, 1# over and it'll cost you $25 for the 1#.

So I bought this scale for around $20 as an insurance policy that I'd never go over in bag weight. And it worked.

Prior to our trip, I was packing for my family of 5 and I wanted to have the smallest footprint for luggage and not be overweight in each bag. We bought new hard clam-shell type luggage (max recommended size is 26" so you can't over pack it). We filled two clam shells and one garment bag and used our scale to distribute weight evenly between all bags.

We were highly successful using this scale and its readings were spot on with UAL's scales upon check-in.

This scale is light weight, super portable and easy to use. It's fast, efficient and measures bag weight quickly and it's easy to read on the unit's display.

On our trip, we took this scale with us to ensure on our return flights we were within weight guidelines. And we were.

This scale makes travelling easy and removes all the "are my bags overweight" mystery game at check in a non-issue.

If you're only going to travel once, buy it. My thoughts were why ever pay an overweight bag fee when you can own this scale for $5 less and NEVER travel with an overweight bag.

And on a side note, it made my wife pack more efficiently that she's ever packed. You only take what you truly need when you know the cost of extra bags and overweight fees are just not worth the hassle.

Truly this is one great purchase and I plan to use it for years to come. Super easy to use, well made, quality product and highly portable. And you'll save on never having to pay an overweight fee and you'll probably travel with fewer bags because of it.

With the luggage weight restrictions, it helps to have a small scale that can be put into a suitcase and used each time one travels. I chose this scale after patiently putting in lots of time previewing many brands and types. Four main reasons I chose this one are: 1) it has a very comfortable handle to hold on to when weighing; 2) the readout is located in a place that is easy to see; 3) it has a secure clip buckle to attach a suitcase when weighing it; and, 4) it is lightweight enough to stow into your suitcase. I am very happy with it. It appears to be quite accurate and the price I paid for it was very reasonable.

I decided to buy this product after reading the good reviews. I'm totally disappointed with this purchase. For a price of $20, one would expect a decent quality product. It's very unfortunate that I didn't try it out soon after receiving the product. Now, I cannot return this luggage scale. I only weighed one suitcase that was ~20 kg. The strap on the male end came off on my very first use. Unlike the female end, the male end was not stitched. I didn't use the scale for weighing heavy luggage. I do not recommend this product to anyone at all. Save your time and money & look elsewhere for a quality product.
